Jesus: ‘A Prophet of Islam’?!

Apparently so, down under:

A Catholic bishop has slammed controversial Islamic billboards for being “provocative and offensive” and he’s calling for them to be removed from prominent locations across Sydney.

The billboards carrying the slogan `Jesus: a prophet of Islam’ were erected late last week in Darlinghurst, Rozelle and Rosehill.

They have been paid for by Islamic group MyPeace, which wants to encourage Christians and Muslims to find common ground by raising awareness that Islam believed in Jesus Christ.

But Bishop Julian Porteous, from the Archdiocese of Sydney, says Christians believe that Jesus “is more than a prophet”.

“He is the Son of God. He is acclaimed Lord and Saviour of humanity,” he said on Monday.

“In Australia with its Christian heritage a billboard carrying the statement `Jesus A prophet of Islam’ is provocative and offensive to Christians.”…

There’s more here.

  1. Good for him. Thank God someone is speaking out. I’m sure the Islamic organization means well and perhaps God will bring some good out of it. But too many people coming from nominally christian backgrounds, are under the impression that converting to Islam is not that big of a deal where Jesus is concerned, since Islam ‘believes in Jesus too’.

  2. Well in a really free society and country, then Christians should also be able to post: Jesus Is Lord!

    We actually have a sign that says just that along a major highway near where I live. I don’t know who put it there, but it’s been there for as long as I can remember. Pretty awesome.
